Mesa police investigate restaurant murder-suicide

Mesa policecontinue to investigate a murder-suicide that happened Thursday night at Phu Thanh Vietnamese Restaurant, 830 W. Southern Ave. Reports say a man walked in around 5:45, killed a woman, hit another woman with a bullet and then killed himself.

Detective Steve Berry says it looks like the shooting was a domestic violence incident. The department is withholding the names of the victims until they can properly notify the next of kin.

The third person was transported to a local hospital where they were treated for their injuries. They are expected to be okay.

Few details are available at this time.
